A Question of Access and Quality: Health Care in New Hampshire


Franklin D. Roosevelt included “The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health” as one of the fundamental rights of Americans. In subsequent decades Medicare and Medicaid were enacted as part of Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society, and the Affordable Care Act of 2010 expanded health care insurance to more Americans. This panel explores the realities of New Hampshire’s health care today and the further strains the COVID-19 pandemic put on the system. Panelists will also examine inequalities that persist for people of color both as health care providers and as patients.

This is a hybrid event. Registration is required for in-person attendance and virtual attendance.

This program is part of the Elinor Williams Hooker Tea Talks 2024 series, funded in part by New Hampshire Humanities through a Community Project Grant

 Join us as we celebrate 50 years of bringing the humanities to your community!
